K-Fed's Money Ploy

11/9/2006 3:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Kevin Federline was speaking to his lawyer about divorcing Britney Spears more than a month before she filed legal papers to end the marriage.

Sources say Federline was communicating with attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan, talking about divorcing Spears and angling to cash in on her fortune. Federline's right to money is extremely limited because of the prenup. TMZ knows the terms of the prenup, and they are not good news for K-Fed. We're told the only thing he'll get is less than 20% of the value of the couple's Malibu estate, valued at approximately $10 million, and spousal support for one year. We're told the support he'll get is less than $250,000.

As for reports that Britney e-mailed her hubby to inform him that she was about to file divorce papers, it simply is not true. Sources tell us that the couple has not been speaking for weeks, but e-mailing each other. She did not, however, talk about divorce in those e-mails. K-Fed learned of the divorce at the time TMZ broke the story that Spears had filed.

Sources say that at least for now, Spears will not comment on K-Fed's plan to fight her for custody of their two children. We know, however, that Spears sees K-Fed's move as nothing more than an attempt to score some money. He's banking on Spears forking over dough to avoid a fight; an unlikely outcome -- given the fact that she's represented by legal pit bull Laura Wasser. Also, if K-Fed got custody, he'd be entitled to a significant amount in child support.

OH!! My God, can you imagine this F-ing guy!!! What a pathetic loser. I say GOOD FOR BRITNEY. I enjoyed following her carreer until she married this F***ING IDIOT. Sorry Brit I know love is blind but dude were you serious? I am very happy to say that I am back to being a BRIT fan and can't wait for her next CD. He will never be a rapper or an anything for that matter. As Mariah Carey said once "I GOTTA SHAKE YOU OFF" and girl did YOU shake it off.
YOU GO BRIT!! Great to have you back....... OH YOU LOOK FANTASTIC TOO!!!

Thank God Britney finally wised up to what a loser she married. She needs to Fed Ex him on to his next meal ticket and focus on her kids. Hopefully now we don't have to see any more skanky pictures of Kevin all over the tabloids. Good riddance for all of us!

REmember when we thought Angelina was a phycho freak? Look at her now! I think Brit can put all this crap behind her. If she can grow up, and move past all this, I think she could do great things. She's young, made a huge mistake that hopefully she's learned from. Just don't start adopting orpahns brit!

#29: I can't stop laughing. Thanks!

Don't worry...Laura Wasser will take care of Vanilla Fed. I hope that when she figures out her legal strategy, she absolutely pounces on the vermin.

Pimpboy has done just about everything wrong that a person can do prior to trying to establish custody, especially custody of an infant. The attorney that he has is likely only looking to petition the court to try to recoup money from Britney for the attorney's fees, because he's sure not going to get paid by his own client! Someone send Kaplan the TMZ article about the media paying for K-loser's shoes. Perhaps Daddy of the Year can get a job at Payless where he can earn money AND get the employee discount for shoes.

K Fed should make a video of all the personal sh*t between him and Brit along wit' all the sh*t 'dat makes Britney look crazy & use it for the back drop to that song called Crazy off his album with Britney singing on it which will send his sales thru the roof I think. Then you people know this dude has a sex tape of him and her around some where. . .
so everyone is sayin' how smart she is for making this move and what not but I don't like the guy either but making her kids basically fatherless is not a good look plus we all know this dude K Fed is grimy so he is about 2 get loose on her in a bunch of different ways that I don't really think she will be able to stomach for long, sad 2 say but it is going 2 be fun 2 watch 2 trailer park redneck white people go at it. Remember ya'll . . "All is Fair . . . .In Love and War."
